Worry or regret seem to choose me in the middle of the night. Invariably, I choose them back. Maybe it's time to try something different—to see the steadfastness of God's presence with me the whole time.
John A. Nelson
A wise friend said that as soon as you say, "It can't happen," the possibilities you have not yet seen start to shrivel and die. So stretch your imagination. God is there and then, here and now.
We don't have to pretend everything is okay when it isn't. We don't have to protect God from our anger or anguish. God can take it.
Lent is a time to learn who and whose we are, to prepare for what is to come, to create a life-shaping bond with the Holy One that not even death will be able to break.
We confess and pray: Defier of Labels, teach me to meet my neighbors in their fullness.
The discipline of rejoicing is an act of resistance when injustices and struggles pile up. If we do that much, we triumph.
Dream big, bold, and brave. God bless the dreamers, young and old, and bless the lands their dreams carry them to.
Kenneth L. Samuel
On this Ash Wednesday we are mindful of the ashes from which we were created.
Quinn G. Caldwell
God knows that behind every revenge fantasy and every bit of righteous anger and every unholy wish for our enemies’ demise lies some ancient hurt or old wrong or fresh wound. And God bends down from on high to gather our tears.
Still, you can’t offer Mercy to an enemy every week and not start to mean it, even a little. You can’t put Healing in someone’s hand for months on end without something rubbing off.
